5. Vocational: To provide for the students courses which will impart skills 
and knowledge in certain vocations best suited to the students' interests 
and aptitudes, while teaching them the dignity of labor through provi-

Student Life 10 

STUDENT LIFE 

Religious Life: At Oakwood, religion is the natural thing. The College 
Church, the Sabbath School, the A.Y.S. (Adventist Youth) Society, the 
Ministerial Forum, the student literature evangelism program, the residence 
hall worship hours, and the many prayer bands afford the students excellent 
opportunities for the development of character, self-expression, leadership, and 
initiative. 

Convocations, the Lyceum Course: During the school year distinguished 
guest speakers address the student body at the chapel hour as well as conduct 
religious Emphasis weeks. The College Lyceum series bring to the campus 
each year several outstanding lecturers and artists. In addition to this, many 
other programs of equal eminence are sponsored by the College. 

Social Activities: A wholesome program of social activities is planned by 
the Director of Student Activities in consultation with the Coordinating Coun- 
cil of Campus Organizations composed of faculty and students. Social pro- 
grams are sponsored during the year by clubs, classes, and organizations. The 
students also enjoy the social and cultural life of the faculty members' homes. 

Extracurricular Activities Participation: In order to ensure satisfactory 
scholarship, the extent to which students may participate in extracurricular 
activities is subject to regulation. 

The recreational activities of the College are designed to serve the wide 
variety of leisure-time interests of the students. The College does not engage 
in off-campus or intercollegiate athletics. 

Intramural Sports: The college sponsors a program of intramural sports in 
connection with the physical education activities. 

Health Service: The College Health Service is designed to meet the medical 
needs of students. Nurses are on active duty during the day and evening and 
on call for emergencies at night. The College Physician holds regular clinic 
hours in the Health Office four days a week and is available on call. In case 
of serious illness or accident, excellent complete hospital care is readily 
available. 

Parents or guardians of students who are seriously ill will be notified 
immediately. 

Student Organizations: Membership in the departmental clubs is based on 
academic attainment in regular college work and is considered a distinct honor. 
The list of student organizations follows: 

Student Association: The United Student Movement (USM) of Oakwood 
College is the major student organization of the College. This organization 
seeks to promote a more perfect relationship among all sectors of the College 
community; to enhance the religious, academic, cultural, and social programs

GOVERNING STANDARDS 

It is the purpose of the College to develop strong men and women with 
high standards of scholarship and the self-discipline necessary for Christian 
leadership. 

The campus government and discipline, therefore, are founded upon the 
principle that character building is the highest object of education and that 
a good name, standing for integrity, honor, and godliness, is the objective alike 
of the student for himself and of the College for him. 

Oakwood College is a Seventh-day Adventist college established to provide 
a Christian environment in which students may prepare themselves for ser- 
vice at home and in other lands. In order to maintain this environment cer- 
tain general rules of conduct apply. 

Student Handbook: In every community there are laws. It is the respon- 
sibility of every student to secure from the Office of Student Services and to 
read the rules and regulations governing student life at Oakwood College, 
preferably before registration. Familiarity with and acceptance of the re- 
quirements set forth in this book will make life at Oakwood College more 
interesting and certainly more enjoyable. 

A student's standing in a Christian school is based not alone on his scholar- 






Student Life 12 

ship attainment but also upon his general conduct and his attitude toward 
the community in which he lives. As a citizen of the college community the 
student must realize that he has been admitted to a privileged group and that 
he has no right to work against that group. Any student who violates the rules 
of the College or whose conduct evidences lack of respect for the standards 
maintained by the College may be asked to withdraw. 

STUDENT CITIZENSHIP 

Each individual coming to Oakwood College for the purpose of entering 
any department of the College is subject to its supervision and jurisdiction 
from the time of arrival in Huntsville until his connection is terminated by 
graduation or by any officially approved withdrawal. 

The record of each student is reviewed periodically, and his continuation 
in college is based upon his attitudes and general conduct, as well as his 
scholastic atttainments. 

Listed among the government policies of the College are infractions which 
are considered suspendable and may be cause for dismissal or serious 
disciplinary action of the first offense. 

Since no student who makes a habit of indulging in any of these practices 
would knowingly be accepted at Oakwood College, the first infraction may 
result in dismissal from school. 

A student whose progress or conduct is unsatisfactory or whose influence 
is detrimental may be asked to withdraw at any time. 

Any student dismissed from school withdraws immediately from the cam- 
pus and may be subjected to charges of trespassing should he return without 
permission from the Administration. 

Leave of Absence: Permission for an ordinary leave of absence from the cam- 
pus may be obtained from the appropriate Residence Dean. Approval must 
also be obtained from the work superintendent. When a leave of absence in- 
volves absence from a class, permission must be obtained from the Vice Presi- 
dent for Academic Affairs. When the leave of absence takes a student farther 
than the city of Huntsville, it must be approved by the Office of Student Ser- 
vices. Written permission from the parent or guardian for travelling must be r- 
on file for every student requesting a leave of absence. Exceptions to this rule I 
are granted only to students who are both of legal age and self-supporting. *■ 
In every case, working students must secure the approval of their work 
superintendent before presenting their requests to their respective deans. ~ 

Attendance at Religious Services: Oakwood College is emphatically a Chris- 
tian college. Attendance at evening worships, chapel, Friday evening vespers, 
Sabbath School, and Sabbath morning church service is a basic requirement. 

Use of Vehicles: Since the ownership and the use of an automobile frequently 
militate against success in college, students are not encouraged to bring 
automobiles with them to the College unless absolutely necessary. Freshmen 
are not permitted to bring automobiles to the College, or to the vicinity, or 



13 



Oakwood College 



to operate automobiles owned by other individuals. 

All students, whether living in residence halls or in the community, who 
own or operate any type of motor vehicle (car, motorcycle, scooter, etc.) must 
register it with the Office of Security at the time of registration for the fall 
quarter, or within 24 hours of his arrival should he arrive after registration 
has been concluded or within 24 hours of its procurement within any quarter 
of the school year. Owners must have a valid operator's license and must show 
proof of liability insurance (including medical coverage) at the time of registra- 
tion and whenever requested by traffic enforcement personnel. 

RESIDENCE HALLS 

Students living in college residence halls may not register for fewer than 
9 quarter hours without permission of the Office of Student Services. Students 
are not permitted to register or receive credit for courses away from the col- 
lege without prior permission of the Academic Policies Committee. 

Ail unmarried students are required to live in one of the College residence 
halls and to board in the College Cafeteria unless they live with parents or 
with other close relatives in the City of Huntsville. When campus housing 
is overcrowded, students age 23 and over may apply to the Housing Com- 
mittee for permission to live in the community. Under special circumstances, 
students under age 23 also may apply to the Housing Committee for permis- 
sion to live off-campus in an officially approved home. 

Such applications will be acted on only at the beginning of a quarter. Failure 
to secure official approval to reside in the community or to withdraw from 
a college residence hall when directed to do so will invalidate the registra- 
tion of a student. Students who have received approval for off campus living 
may be called into the College residence halls at any time the administration 
deems necessary for reasons of discipline or under-utilization of available space 
in the residence halls. 

Residence Supervision: Each residence hall is under the direction of a 
Residence Dean. The Residence Deans have general supervision of the well- 
being of the students under their charge. 

APARTMENTS 

The College owns thirty units of one- and two-bedroom apartments which 
are available for married students. These apartments rent for reasonable 
amounts. There are also approved apartments in the community, furnished 
and unfurnished, in which married students may live. For information write 
the Vice-President for Student Services. 

THE COUNSELING CENTER • 

A comprehensive program of guidance and counseling services is made 
available to students. 



SERVICES 

Services include TESTING (diagnostic assessment, national placement ex- 
aminations, CLEP), COUNSELING (personal, career, pre-marital, marriage 
and family), and DEVELOPMENTAL GUIDANCE (career development, 



Counseling 14 

human relations, leadership training, and family life education). 
GOALS AND PHILOSOPHY 

The Center's emphasis is on personal development. Its primary goal is to 
help students become more effective in handling and resolving problem situa- 
tions before they become critical by teaching them what to expect and how 
to behave adaptively under most circumstances. It is a preventive philosophy 
which is believed to be most suitable to the needs, beliefs, and practices of 
Seventh-day Adventists and other fundamentally conservative Christians. 

The goal for its consulting activities is to facilitate the continuing develop- 
ment and maintenance of an optimal collegiate environment for learning and 
individual growth. 

CONFIDENTIALITY 

Personal information regarding specific individuals is held in strictest con- 
fidence and may not be released without the written consent of the persons 
involved. 

COST 

Professional services to students are given without charge. There are, 
however, charges associated with the computer scoring and analysis of 
diagnostic tests and the administration of the national placement examina- 
tions and CLEP. 

CAREER DEVELOPMENT AND PLACEMENT 
COOPERATIVE EDUCATION 

The Cooperative Education Program (CEP) combines classroom learning 
with actual work experience in community businesses and corporations. This 
is done on an alternating basis in a work setting that closely relates to a stu- 
dent's major field of study and his or her career aspiration. 

Benefits. Academic credits are earned in the classroom and on the job. In 
addition, a number of other student needs are met. They are, 1) money to 
pay educational costs and provide for personal necessities; 2) opportunity to 
test the propriety of educational and career goals; 3) opportunity to enrich 
the learning process by applying theoretical concepts to the practical, con- 
crete demands of real work situations and their attendant problems; and 4) 
upon graduation, increased employability because of the distinct advantage 
of having a college degree and bona fide work experience in the career of 
one's choice. 

Eligibility. To qualify for the program, students must have completed their 
freshman year and have maintained a cumulative GPA of at least 2.50. 
Transfer students may apply after completing twelve (12) hours in residence 
at Oakwood College. 

Rate of Pay. Once hired, students are paid by the employing organizations 
at the standard rate for entry level workers or in accordance with their in- 
dividual experience and skills. Under no circumstances should they earn less 
than minimum wage. 

Academic Credit. Up to twelve (12) hours of academic credit may be earned 
for each quarter that you participate in the program. For written details on 
how to qualify for these hours, contact the Placement Office or the Office 
of Academic Affairs. 



[ 



15 Oakwood College 

The credits earned through participation in CEP are elective credits and 
may be included in the total required for graduation. However, they will 
NOT be deducted from the minimum hours required for the major and/or 
minor. It must be understood that, in most cases, participation in the pro- 
gram will entail more than four years of study to complete the requirements 
for the baccalaureate degree. 

Cooperative Education courses may be identified by the prefix CE. The 
last digit of the number refers to the work period for that year. For example: 
CE 301 - CE 306: First Work Period through Sixth Work Period. 

Where to Apply. Students wishing to apply for CEP should first, 1) con- 
sult with the Coordinator of Cooperative Education, and 2) submit a formal 
request to the Academic Policies Committee. 

COOPERATIVE PROGRAMS 

The following types of coop programs are made available at Oakwood Col- 
lege: 1) Visiting Students, 2) Architect, Engineering, and Veterinary Medicine

a minimum of 24-32 hours earned at Oakwood College or a cumulative GPA 
of 3.25, and a minimum of 33 hours earned at O.C.

Magna Cum Laude. A student must have a grade point average of 3.50. 
Summa Cum Laude. A student must have a grade point average of 3.75, 
or above. 

INCOMPLETE WORK 

When at the end of a quarter a student is behind in his or her classwork, 
the teacher does not automatically grant a grade of "I" to that student for 
more time to do the requirements. If, however, because of interruptive ill- 
ness or other unavoidable circumstances, a student should desire the privilege 
of receiving a grade of "I" (Incomplete) to allow more time to fulfill class 
requirements, that student may apply by doing all of the following before 
the end of final exam week: . 

1. Obtain and fill out a "Request and Authorization for INCOMPLETE" 

at the Office of Academic Affairs. t- 

2. Attach thereto a doctor's statement if the reason is medical. 

3. Obtain the signatures of the class instructor's department head, and the 
Vice-President for Academic Affairs. 

4. Return the form to the Vice-President's Office and receive an answer ^ 
before leaving the campus. 

An "I" may be changed to a regular grade when the classwork is completed 
within the approved deadline. Such a deadline might range anywhere from 
a few days to several weeks but no longer than the sixth week of the next 
quarter even when the student is not registered the next quarter. The T' 
automatically converts to an "F" if not removed within the prescribed time. 
Should more time because of further illness or unavoidable circumstances be

needed to remove the incomplete, the student may, before the deadline ex- 
pires, request in writing an extension of time from the Academic PoUcies 
Committee. 

ACADEMIC PROBATION 

All students whose cumulative grade point average (GPA) is less than 2.00 
shall be placed on academic probation. Retained at Oakwood College under 
restricted privileges, students whose grade point average is less than 2.00 must 
take part in the Special Instruction Program (SIP) conducted by the 
Developmental Learning Resource Center. Failure of such students to take 
part in the program may result in dismissal from the college. Students below 
2.00 who fail to make acceptable progress in the estimation of the institution 
will be dropped. 

A student who is dropped for the first time because of poor scholarship, 
he or she is not eligible to be considered for readmission or reacceptance un- 
til after the end of two (2) quarters from the date of dismissal. When dropped 
the second time, the student becomes eligible for readmission or reacceptance 
after one (1) calendar year from the date of dismissal during which time the 
student must have attended another accredited college for at least one quarter, 
carrying a minimum of 12 quarter hours with no grade lower than "C." In 
both cases, to be so considered, the student must present a request to the Ad- 
missions Office. 

A student whose cumulative GPA is below 2.00 is denied permission to 
represent the College in any official capacity or hold office in any student 
organization. 

The following is a summary list of requirements for a student on academic 
probation (GPA below 2.00): 

1. Limit registration to class load of 13 hours per quarter. 

2. Include in class load at least one course in which he or she has received 
a "D" or "F" and/or enroll in a remedial course as counseled by the 
academic advisor, and 

3. Go to the Developmental Learning Resource Center for assistance. 

Beginning Freshmen on Academic Probation will not be allowed to ad- 
vance to regular academic standing until all the above applicable academic 
deficiencies have been removed, and at least 12 hours of other college credit 
have been earned with a minimum GPA of 2.00. 

DEVELOPMENTAL LEARNING RESOURCE CENTER 

The Developmental Learning Resource Center is an academic support ser- 
vice which exists for the purpose of helping students who need assistance in 
any academic endeavor. This is accomplished by peer-tutoring and academic 
advisement under the supervision of a full-time coordinator. The center also 
maintains a wide variety of media materials and individualized study guides. 
The student (peer) tutors are generally upperclassmen recommended by the 
various departments. 

The Center is located on the ground floor of Cunningham Hall and is open 
during the day and evening hours in order to accommodate all students desiring 
such assistance. 



Academic Policies 30 

FRESHMAN STUDIES 

The Freshman Studies Program is a composite of diagnostic, instructional, 
and supportive services to first-year students. Its purpose is to increase their 
potential for academic success and personal adjustment to the demands of 
college life. Components of the program include: 
Orientation. 

The week preceding registration for the Fall Quarter of each year is known 
as Freshman Orientation Week. New students admitted to freshman status 
are expected to report as notified and, upon arrival, to participate in all of 
the scheduled activities of the week. These include (a) orientation to the 
academic and residential requirements of the College and the resources that 
are available to assist all students in meeting them successfully; (b) 
developmental guidance and instruction regarding tasks, skills, and attitudes 
that are essential for academic and personal success. 
Diagnostic Assessment. 

During Freshman Orientation Week, special tests are administered which 
are required of all new freshmen who have not already taken them. They 
are the American College Test (ACT), the Nelson Denny Reading Test, the 
Test of Standard Written English (TSWE), and an essay. 

Results from these tests are used for (1) placing students in appropriate 
courses of study; (2) facilitating the development and/or provision of prescrip- 
tive teaching materials and strategies; (3) fulfilling Alabama state requirements 
for entrance into special programs; and (4) assisting advisors and counselors 
in their work of helping students to plan their academic programs evaluate 
their academic progress, and set realistic personal and career goals. Ac- 
cumulated data will help the College to determine what areas of its programs 
and services need strengthening and/or modification in order to effectively 
fulfill its commitment to the success of its students. 
Academic Advisement and Program Planning. 

Although their declared interests in specific disciplines will be 
acknowledged, first-year students will be encouraged to concentrate on general 
education requirements for the purpose of academic exploration and conti- 
nuing self-discovery. Freshman advisors, by means of extended interviews and 
performance reviews throughout the year, will assist in the process of confir- 
ming or modifying the personal interests and aspirations of each student. 
Special Services. 

Students with special academic and developmental needs will receive ap- 
propriate assistance from DLRC, the school's learning resource center. 
Assistance will be in the form of individualized course loads, specialized in- 
struction, tutoring, and counseling performed by a dedicated staff of profes- 
sional counselors and selected honor students. Referrals for more specialized 
services will be made as warranted. 

REPEATED COURSES 

A student may repeat a course in which he has a grade of "C" or better 
only by permission of the Academic Policies Committee. 

A student who has earned a grade of "D" or less in a major, minor, cognate, 
or in other required courses may, repeat the course. 

The student who repeats a course is required to register in the regular \\'a\'.

repeat all the work of the course, including laboratory requirements and other 
required activities. 

When a student is granted permission to repeat a course which has been 
previously recorded, his GPA will be computed on the basis of the final grade 
earned. However, both grades will appear on his transcript. 



REMEDIAL COURSES 

Beginning Freshmen entering Oakwood College on Academic Probation 
must pursue a prescribed course of remedial studies during their first year, 
which may include any of the following: EN 095, EN 099, MA 095 and PY 
095. These ten hours of remedial courses, which are in addition to the 192 
hours needed for graduation, will be offered at half price, and must be passed 
with a minimum grade of C (2.00). If failed, they will have to be repeated 
the next quarter, until passed. 



AUDITING COURSES 

Students may audit courses only by permisson of the Vice-President for 
Academic Affairs and the instructor concerned. 

Those who are interested in such courses should register at the time of the 
regular registration. 

No credit is given for a course audited. 

The tuition charged is one-half the regular charge for credit. 

Laboratory courses may not be audited. 

A course started on the auditing basis cannot be changed to a credit basis 
after the first week of the course. 



TRANSFER CREDIT 

No student shall take work by correspondence or enroll in another institu- 
tion of higher learning while registered at Oakwood College without prior 
approval from the Records Office. Otherwise, no credit will be allowed. 



CORRESPONDENCE 

Oakwood College recognizes and accepts credit for courses taken with the 
Home Study International, which is the Extension Division of the Associated 
Colleges of Seventh-day Adventists. 

A maximum of 18 quarter hours (12 semester hours) of correspondence work 
may apply toward a baccalaureate degree program and twelve quarter hours 
toward an associate degree. 

Ordinarily a student will be permitted to carry correspondence while in 
residence only if the required course is not obtainable at the college. 

It is not recommended that seniors do any correspondence or extension work. 
In cases where this is an absolute necessity, the official transcript for the work 
completed must be in the Records Office by March 15, for Spring graduation. 

Correspondence with a "D" grade or below is unacceptable. No cor- 
respondence credit will be entered upon the student's record until he has earned 



Academic Policies 32 

a minimum of 16 hours in residence with an average of at least "C." (See _ 
Study Load). 



SUMMER SCHOOL 

Under the umbrella of the Graduate Extension Program with Andrews 
University, the College offers brief intensive courses and workshops. 
Undergraduate courses are also offered during the summer. 



SEMINAR COURSES 

The only seminar courses offered are those already so labeled under depart- 
mental sections of the O. C. Bulletin. These require regular class attendance 
as based on the credit hour of the course. 



RESEARCH AND INDEPENDENT STUDY 

Certain departments offer a course entitled "Research and Independent 
Study" for 1 to 4 hours credit to provide qualified students an opportunity 
to work on problems or topics of special interest, to engage in research pro- 
jects, and to do scholarly study as advanced work. Following are fundamen- 
tal requirements for enrolling in such a course: The student will (1) be a junior 
or senior in residence with at least a B average (3.00), (2) make formal ap- 
plication at the time of pre-registration by conferring with the head of his 
or her major department, (3) be a major in the department in which he or 
she desires the course "Research and Independent Study, " (4) receive in writing 
the specific requirements and expectations of the course from the instructor. 



WRITING EMPHASIS COURSES 

Two (2) writing emphasis courses are required of all upper division students. 
Each department will designate and supervise 1 or 2 required courses for their 
majors which will emphasize essay type tests and/or written reports or a term 
paper. 



TRANSIENT LETTERS 

When an Oakwood student of regular standing finds it necessary to drop 
out of attendance for one quarter but desires to register at another college 
or university, he or she may request a "transient letter" from the Records Of- 
fice which recommends the student for temporary admission to that other 
school without the student's having to go through normal admission re- 
quirements. Transient letters, however, are not granted for attendance at col- 
leges or universities within a fifty-mile radius of Huntsville during the academic 
year. 

Transient credit with grades below "C" is unacceptable. Students from other 
schools desiring transient admission to Oakwood must provide official sup- 
port from the home institution. 



[ 



33 Oakwood College 



TRANSCRIPTS 

The Records Office releases transcripts of a student's work at the college 
only upon the student's written request. Telephone requests cannot be honored. 

A student may secure an unofficial transcript for his use, but official 
transcripts must be sent directly to other colleges, organizations, and other 
approved sources. 

The college reserves the right to withhold all information concerning the 
record of any student who has unpaid accounts or other charges or who is 
delinquent in payment of student loans. No exceptions will be made. 

Two weeks from the time we receive your request should be allowed for 
the processing and mailing of the transcript. Official transcripts from other 
institutions which have been presented to Oakwood for admission and evalua- 
tion of credit become the property of Oakwood and are not reissued or copied 
for release. Each student is entitled to one (1) official transcript without charge. 
A fee of $2.00 is charged for each additional transcript. 



ATTENDANCE REGULATIONS 

Regular and prompt attendance at all classes, chapel exercises, worships, 
and work assignments is expected of all students. Lack of attendance, therefore, 
implies lack of cooperation with the requirements of the College. 



CLASS ABSENCES 

Oakwood College operates under the following principles: 
It is the responsibility of each instructor to interpret the College policies 
concerning attendance and to make his interpretations known to his students 
at the beginning of each course. Every instructor has the right to count class 
participation including attendance in calculating the term grade. It is the 
responsibility of the student to keep a record of his absences, to keep himself 
informed of the requirements of the instructor, to take all examinations at 
the time prescribed by the instructor, and to turn in all assignments when 
they are due. 

Other than the above, the following regulations are in effect: 
Attendance with punctuality is required at all classes and laboratory ap- 
pointments. No class skips are allowed. If for any reason the total number 
of absences is double the number of credit hours of the course per quarter, 
credit may, at the discretion of the instructor, be forfeited and a grade of 
"FA" be recorded. Absences are counted from the first official day of classes. 
Three tardinesses are equivalent to one absence. A tardiness of more than 
ten (10) minutes is considered an absence. 

Authorized leaves of absence from campus do not excuse the student from 
classes or relieve the student of required class work, the student, however, 
must make arrangements with the teacher for every anticipated school trip 
and other authorized leaves at least 48 hours before the beginning of such 



Academic Policies 34 

anticipated schedules. All make-up work, involving examinations and other 
class requirements, must be made up within seven (7) days after the absence ^ 
is incurred. 



ASSEMBLY ABSENCES 

All registered students (on and off campus) are required to attend chapel. 
A student is allowed two unexcused absences from Assembly without penalty 
each quarter. A $5.00 charge will be made for each unexcused absence in 
excess of two. 

Excuses for absences from Assembly must be submitted in writing to the 
Director of Student Services before the very next Assembly. Failure to do this 
will automatically result in an unexcused absence. 

Permanent excuses from Assembly may be granted in the case of unavoidable 
work responsibilities. In order to, be eligible for a permanent excuse for a 
quarter, a written request, signed by the work supervisor, must be submitted 
to the Office of Student Services within 21 days of each quarter. 



STUDENT MISSIONARY PROGRAM 

Each year, several Oakwood students go to foreign lands and serve as mis- 
sionaries. Their responsibilities range anywhere from religious leadership to 
teaching, to industrial/vocational work. For details, contact the Department 
of World Missions, Oakwood College. 

Following are the academic requirements for student missionaries: 

1. The applicant must have attained at least sophomore standing (minimal 
36 quarter hours) with a cumulative grade point average of "C" (2.00) 
or above, and no grade below "C" in all English Composition and Gram- 
mar courses. 

2. The applicant must have a "B" (3.00) average or above in the subject 
area that he/she is expected to teach as a student missionary. 

3. Upon completion of a year of satisfactory service as a student missionary, 
the student shall receive four (4) hours of elective credit on a "pass/fail" 
basis in the area of "Student Foreign Service." Quality of service is deter- 
mined by a written evaluation from immediate supervisor or appropriate 
official over the student missionary. The student may opt for an addi- 
tional four (4) hours should he/she secure prior approval from in instruc- 
tional department and through the Academic Policies Committee 
establishing that more specialized mission services will be experienced 
such as, but not limited to, teaching certain academic disciplines. 

GRIEVANCE ON ACADEMIC MATTERS 

Any student who desires to express concern regarding instructional mat- 
ters such as perceived unfairness or grading methodolog)' or cheating or some 
misunderstanding within or without the classroom is encouraged to confer 
first with the teacher of the class and, if deemed necessary, with the teacher's 
department chairperson. The Vice-President for Academic Affairs in such mat- 
ters should be a last resort after the student and/or the teacher and/or the

Students planning to enter a particular professional school should acquaint 
themselves with the specific requirements of that school. 
See the department chair or advisor for requirements for the following pre- 
professional programs. 

PRE-ENGINEERING 

John A. Blake, Advisor 
This program provides a means by which our students desirous of pursu- 
ing careers in engineering will satisfy the requirements for Walla Walla Col- 
lege and will enter the third year at Walla Walla with minimum disruption 
in their academic program. We will still require students to take a course 
in Computer Science (EG 198) at UAH during the spring quarter of the se- 
cond year in order to satisfy the computer science requirements for WWC. 

PRE-LAW 

Emmanuel Saunders, Advisor 
Students interested in pre-law should counsel with the Pre-Law Advisor 
concerning the entrance requirements of law schools. 

Since a college degree is necessary for admission to most law schools, it is 
recommended that a student elect a major field of concentration not later 
than the beginning of the second year. Majors and minors in the fields of 
business administration, history, English, psychology and social work and 
political science are generally preferred, although other majors may be ac- 
ceptable. Electives in human physiology and anatomy and in mathematics 
are quite helpful. 

The booklet, Law Schools and Bar Admission Requirements, gives detailed 
information concerning a desirable academic background for the study of law. 
Interested students who desire a copy of this booklet should write to the follow- 
ing address:

BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES 



BIOLOGY (Bl) 

The Department is interested with providing its students both the breadth 
of understanding and the opportunity to explore many areas in biology in 
greater depth. The required courses and cognates in the concentration establish 
a core of fundamental knowledge in biological and related science. Students 
then build on this base from a variety of other courses (electives), laboratory, 
and discussions that explore areas within biology from the basic level to cur- 
rent research topics. The development of laboratory and field work skill is 
encouraged. The major in biology prepares students for immediate employ- 
ment as well as for professional training in medicine and biomedical research.

EDUCATION 

EDUCATION (ED) 

Teacher education at Oakwood College prepares teachers for the early 
childhood, elementary, and secondary levels. Oakwood College is an institu- 
tional member of the American Association for Colleges of Teacher Educa- 
tion (AACTE). The teacher education program is approved by the Alabama 
State Department of Education, the Seventh-day Adventist General Con- 
ference Department of Education, and the National Council for the Accredita- 
tion of Teacher Education (NCATE). 

Through reciprocity, graduates from approved programs may receive public 
school certification in approximately 35 states, and church school certifica- 
tion throughout North America. 

Graduates in education are employed in a wide variety of settings both 
within the denomination and in the public sector. Some graduates pursue 
advanced studies in such areas as school administration, guidance and counsel- 
ing, special education, school psychology, and early childhood education and 
related fields.

ADMISSION TO TEACHER EDUCATION 

Entrance to college does not qualify a student for admission to teacher 
education. Eligibility for admission to teacher education is determined after 
completion of the sophomore year in college. The first two years in college 
provide the student an opportunity to qualify for entrance into a teacher educa- 
tion program. Students, in the process of considering a teaching career should 
go immediately to the Department of Education for appropriate informa- 
tion and advisement regarding their teaching areas and admission into teacher 
education. 

Criteria for admission into teacher education include the following: 
1. An application for admission to teacher education submitted after com- 
pletion of at least 90 quarter hours, including 72 hours of general 
requirements. 
2. A minimum score of 16 on the American College Test (ACT) or a 
minimum score of 745 on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is required. 
The tests may be taken at any time prior to admission to Teacher Educa- 
tion but the score submitted shall not be more than five years old. 
3. A minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.50 on all college work 
attempted. 

4 . Satisfactory performance on the Alabama English Language Proficien- 

cy test, as well as demonstrated competency in the basic skills. 

5 . Satisfactory assessments of one or more of the following: recommenda- 

tions; interviews; tests of scholastic performance, temperament, and ar- 
ticulation; along with other objective and subjective measures of 
performance. 

Students desiring a career in secondary education should consult the Pro- 
gram Advisor and the Secondary Education Office no later than the first 
quarter of the sophomore year in order to plan an appropriate course-of- study. 

The exact course requirements may differ from student to student depen- 
ding on the precise time student enrolls in teacher education. This curriculum 
is based on denominational, state, and institutional policies and is thereby 
subject to change. When student applies and is accepted to teacher educa- 
tion (after 90 quarter hous), a permanent checksheet is issued which should 
not change so long as student is continuously enrolled at Oakwood College. 

The Teacher Education Council reserves the right to admit persons to 
teacher education who, in the judgment of the council, are most likely to profit 
from the teacher education program-of- study offered at Oakwood College. 

If necessary, a student may repeat required examinations in an effort to 
meet admission standards. Only a limited number of specified courses in educa- 
tion may be earned prior to admission to the Teacher Education Program. 

No grade below 'C (2.00) may apply toward a major or minor field of 
specialization. 

Application to Student Teaching Internship: In their junior year, educa- 
tion students must apply to the Teacher Education Council for admission to 
student teaching for the ensuing senior year. In addition to letters of recom- 
mendation, students are required to have GPA minimums of 2.50 major, 2.50 
minor, and 2.50 overall. Students should plan to take student teaching 



Education 76 

during fall and winter quarters only. All methods courses should be taken 
before student teaching. Although enrollment in other classwork along with 
student teaching is discouraged, permission may be granted under the follow- 
ing conditions: 1) a minimum GPA of 3.00 to take one additional course, 2) 
the additional coursework should in no way interfere with the student teaching 
experience. 

Waiver: Requirements for teacher certification are based on denomination, 
state and institutional policies and are thereby subject to change without 
notice. 

A compendium of program changes made since this printing are on file 
at the Education Department Office, Burrell Hall, Room 105, and are 
available upon request. 

Other Requirements: Detailed information on teacher preparation and cer- 
tification is outlined in the Teacher Education Handbook. 

A copy of the Handbook may be secured from the Education Office, Bur- 
rell Hall; or by writing to the Department of Education, Oakwood College,

The Department of English seeks to develop effective programs for train- 
ing all students to read with speed and comprehension, to speak and write 
clearly, and to listen and recall correctly. The Department also seeks to enable 
majors as well as non-majors to perceive that literature is important because 
it is a source of vital insights into the problems and achievements of men- 
ancient or modern. Beyond and above these objectives, the Department deals 
with languages from a Christian perspective by emphasizing such qualities 
of language as purity, kindness, and honesty. Major programs are offered for 
those intending to pursue graduate study in English, and communications, 
for those preparing to teach on the elementary and secondary levels, and for 
those pursuing other careers.

MATHEMATICS ^""'"'^'™^^ 

AND PHYSICS 

MATHEMATICS (MA) AND PHYSICS (PH) 

The specific objectives of this department are in agreement with the general 
objectives of the college. 

Mathematics may be classified according to two general categories, pure 
mathematics and applied mathematics. Pure mathematics is very abstract, 
and proof (in the sense of a deductive system) is its most important concern. 
On the other hand, applied mathematics has arisen out of attempts to solve 
problems in the natural sciences and, in particular, the physical sciences. This 
department proposes to present these two points of view as a combined and 
unified whole. 

The department further proposes to develop an appreciation by the stu- 
dent of the fact that the One who created and upholds the universe also makes 
the integers and gave man the mental power and the will to develop the rest 
of what is called mathematics. 

Those who plan to teach in secondary schools must also minor in Educa- 
tion, and meet the requirements for teacher certification. 

Mathematics majors are encouraged to minor in at least one of the foUow- 
\n^ subjects: chemistry, physics, or business administration.

MUSIC 

MUSIC (MU) 

The Department of Music provides a challenging, professional, intellec- 
tual and Christian environment for the serious study of the musical arts. The 
music faculty desires and requires that every student enrolled in the depart- 
ment, acquire the knowledge to understand and appreciate music as one of 
the greatest intellectual and aesthetic achievements of the human mind. 

Students who are committed to developing their talent to its highest for 
service to God and to their fellowmen are encouraged to apply. 

DEGREE PROGRAMS 

The Department of Music offers programs of study leading to the Bachelor 
of Arts Degree and the Bachelor of Science Degree. 

BACHELOR OF ARTS IN MUSIC 

The Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in music is a pre-performance 
degree. It prepares the student for graduate study leading to a professional 
performance career or to an academic career. 

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN MUSIC 

The Bachelor of Science in Music Education degree offers a course of study 
that leads to a professional teaching career. Upon completion of this program 
the graduate is qualified to teach choral and instrumental music from 
kindergarten through secondary school. 

MINOR IN MUSIC 

The music minor is designed for the person who has a musical background 
in vocal or instrumental music and wishes to enrich his knowledge. While 
serving as a source of personal artistic growth, the minor may also serve as 
a second teaching field. 

MINOR IN MUSIC - Secondary Instrument 

Candidates for the Bachelor of Arts Degree in Applied Music areas and 
selected music majors — can take a minor in music on a secondary instrument. 

SPECIAL ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

All new entrants to the Department of Music must present a successful audi- 
tion in voice or an instrument. Generally, auditions are held according to 
published schedule, but special appointments may be arranged where 
necessary, and applicants may submit tapes when auditions are not feasible. 
Auditions should include technical exercises, scales and arpeggios and at least 
three compositions of different periods and in different styles. At this audi- 
tion, one composition is to be performed from memory. 



Music 124 

Students wishing to be admitted to Freshman classification as majors in ap- 
plied music areas (pre-performance degree) must demonstrate on: L 

Piano, the ability to play any scale or arpeggio in moderately rapid tempo, j— 

hands together; standard studies, such as Hanon or Czerny, Book I; easy 
classical sonatas and the Bach Little Preludes or Two-Part Inventions. L 



classical sonatas and the Bach Little Preludes or Two-Part Inventions. 

Voice, a good natural voice and the ability to sing simple songs on pitch with 
correct phrasing and musical intelligence. 

Band/Orchestra/Instruments, a thorough knowledge of the basic technique 
of the chosen instrument; students must either bring their own instrument 
or make prior arrangements with the department; previous study of piano 
is desirable. 

All students are required to complete both an entrance audition in the per- 
forming medium and an entrance examination in music theory with a pass- 
ing grade before one is considered as a music major or music miner. These 
examinations are taken early in the first quarter of student's study. Students 
must consult their major advisors assigned to them at registration, for exact 
date, time and place of each examination or audition. 

Deficiencies in musical background will require that the student take Basic 
Musicianship, MU 111-113 and Keyboard Music which may result in an ex- 
tension of time in fulfilling the degree requirements. 



Recital attendance is an essential part of the music student's training and is 
required for 100 percent of all Department of Music sponsored recitals in each 
quarter. A grade of Unsatisfactory (U) will result if this requirement is not 
met. Department of Music sponsored recitals include the general student 
recitals, junior recitals, senior recitals, faculty recitals and recitals and lec- 
tures by visiting artists. 

A student receiving an unsatisfactory (U) grade in Student Recital must com- 
plete satisfactorily a 3 credit music course outside of the curriculum re- 
quirements, selected by the student with the advisor's approval. Change of 
Applied Music instructor may not be made without permission of the Depart- 
ment of Music Chairperson. 

JURY 

The performance examination given at the close of each quarter is required 
of all students who have completed at least two full quarters of Applied Music 
study at the Major or Minor level. According to a posted examination (JURY) 
schedule. Majors and Minors will sign up and perform for the music faculty. 



125 Oakwood College 

assigned technical exercises and musical selections/compositions studied 
throughout the quarter in their areas of performance. 

The "Technical Examination" is a comprehensive examination required of 
students taking major or minor courses in Applied Music and Theory at the 
close of their third year of study. 

The "Piano Proficiency Examination" is required of non-keyboard music ma- 
jors enrolled in Functional class Piano, MU 114-119, courses for two years. 
It may be taken at the end of any quarter during the freshman or sophomore 
year upon the recommendation of the piano instructor. Additional study, 
which may be required to pass the proficiency examination, will be on a non- 
credit basis. 

Performance Requirements in the form of recital appearances are made by 
the students in their area of specialization. Recital descriptions and re- 
quirements follow. 

MAJOR QUALIFYING RECITAL: A 30 to 40-minute qualifying recital 
in the second quarter of the sophomore year, required of students who 
desire certification for upper-level study as performance music majors 
(Bachelor of Arts Degree) . 

JUNIOR MAJOR RECITAL: A solo recital of at least 30 minutes in length 
required of all performance music majors during their junior year. 

MUSIC TEACHER-EDUCATION RECITAL: A solo recital, of at least 
40 minutes in length, required of all music Teacher Education Majors 
during their Junior or Senior year. Music Teacher Education Majors of 
special attainment in their applied minor may be granted permission to 
give a full recital, upon recommendation of their instructor and approval 
of the Applied Music Faculty. 

SENIOR MAJOR RECITAL: A solo recital, of at least one hour in length, 
required of all graduating applied music majors and piano pedagogy ma- 
jors. One month before the approved pre-recital date the candidate per- 
forms the memorized program before the music faculty.

majors and minors studying applied music are required to frequently ap- 
pear on the General Student Recital. 

PERFORMANCE FORUM: Forum is a weekly laboratory where per- 
formance skills are developed. Thus all applied music students are re- 
quired, each quarter, to perform at weekly forums as well as at the general 
recitals. 

JUNIOR/SENIOR MINOR RECITAL: A solo recital, of at least 30 
minutes in length is required of all music minors.

RELIGION 

AND THEOLOGY 



RELIGION (RE) AND BIBLICAL LANGUAGES (BL) 

The entire mosaic of courses in Religion and Theology is designed to develop 
vv^ithin the student a deep appreciation for the importance of the Bible in 
discovering the true philosophy of life, to encourage the application of the 
teachings of Jesus Christ to contemporary times, and to provide training for 
students who desire to serve God, the Church, and humanity. 

The department offers the Bachelor of Arts Degree in three areas, namely: 
(1) THEOLOGY, (2) RELIGION, and (3) RELIGIOUS EDUCATION. 

The THEOLOGY major looks to the Pastor/Evangelistic ministries and con- 
siders college as preparatory to further training at the SDA Theological 
Seminary of Andrews University where admission requires no less than a 2.50 
grade point average. The RELIGION major follows a course of study specially 
individualized to prepare for such Christian professions as Bible Worker In- 
structorship. Business, Foreign Missions, Hospital/Military Chaplaincy, Law, 
Layperson Leadership, Literature Ministry, and Medical or Dental Ministry. 
RELIGIOUS EDUCATION prepares for classroom teaching on the Elemen- 
tary and Secondary levels with teacher certification as well as places the stu- 
dent on track for teaching on College, University or Seminary levels. 

Programs other than the Bachelor of Arts Degree include: 1) Associate of 
Arts Degree in Bible Worker Instructorship, 2) Certificate in Church Leader- 
ship, and 3) Minors in Biblical Languages, Theology, and Religion. 

Because of the large number of persons preparing for the 
pastoral/evangelistic ministry and the increased need for training in also a 
non-ministerial profession, IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT 
EVERY THEOLOGY MAJOR HAVE ALSO A DOUBLE (or SECOND) 
MAJOR in which case no MINOR is required. Such a student also takes a 
shorter list of "COGNATE" classes. 

Entrance to the college does not qualify a student for admission to the 
Theology program. Students who desire to be admitted must file a formal 
application with the Department of Religion and Theology the first quarter 
of their sophomore year at which time a list of standards for admission and 
candidacy will be given them. These standards include such requirements 
as a battery of diagnostic tests for understanding of themselves and their voca- 
tion, a cumulative G.P.A. of 2.00, demonstrated proficiency in English com- 
munication particularly by passing EN 101, 102, 103, and by providing 



Religion and Theology 



148 



evidence of moral, emotional, social, and physical maturity. Students are ad- 
mitted to the Theology program upon approval by the Religion and Theology 
faculty at the beginning of the junior or third year. The purpose of this ad- 
mission procedure lies in its helping the student to understand his or her call 
to ministerial service, and only those students who complete these requirements 
will be recommended as prospects for ministerial employment. 

The EXTERNSHIP PROGRAM is available for the ministerial students who 
would "round out" their classroom studies with practical experience by assisting 
a church pastor for three consecutive quarters within a one-hundred mile 
radius of the college. Participants must be juniors or seniors who have com- 
pleted RE 100 (Introduction to Ministry) and is enrolled in or completed RE 
321 (Homiletics and Preaching) . A "Certificate of Merit" is presented to each 
student who satisfactorily completes this program. Details of the Externship 
are available in the Religion Department Office. 

NOTE: Religion, Theology, and Religious Education Majors are required to 
take the sequence RE 201-202, and HI 103.

DESCRIPTION OF COURSES 

BL 201-202-203. BEGINNING N.T. GREEK 4-4-4 

These courses are designed to familiarize the student with the fundamen- 
tals of Greek grammar and sentence structure as found in the Greek New 
Testament. Vocabulary drills, simple translation, and reading exercises 
are provided in each lesson. All quarters of Beginning New Testament 
Greek include a weekly, one hour lab requirement in addition to regular 
class attendance requirements. Lab assignments are made during the first 
week of classes after students have received job assignments. 

BL 301-302. INTERMEDIATE N.T. GREEK 4-2 

Intermediate New Testament Greek consists in a comprehensive review 
of Greek grammar and syntax, translation of selected passages in the 
Greek New Testament, Greek vocabulary building through word studies, 
and elementary Greek work classifications. The course will emphasize 
some advanced principles of exegesis. Primary emphasis in the course 
relates to the use of Greek as a research tool and as a tool for more effec- 
tive preaching. Each quarter of Intermediate N.T. Greek requires a one- 
hour weekly lab in addition to regular course work. Prerequisite: BL 
201-202-203. 



BL 303. INTERMEDIATE N.T. GREEK 2 

A more advanced coverage of Intermediate New Testament Greek, in- 
cluding an introduction to the Greek Septuagint and the Apocrypha in 
anticipation of studies in Biblical Hebrew. This course also introduces 
the student to the New Testament Apocrypha and selected Greek Patristic 
writings. Each quarter of Intermediate N.T. Greek requires a one-hour 
weekly lab in addition to regular course work. Prerequisite: BL 301-302.

BL 411-412. BEGINNING CLASSICAL HEBREW 4-4 

A survey of the most prevalent language found in the Old Testament with 
emphasis on syntax, sentence structure, vocabulary, reading and transla- 
tion. The objective is not only to better equip the student for graduate 
work in Biblical study but also to provide him with a useful tool toward 
an accurate interpretation and understanding of the Bible during his col- 
lege career and during his personal study. Because Hebrew is not required 
in the theological curriculum, it is offered only upon special request to 
the Religion Department. 

* Language requirements for the Theology major must be taken in the 
following sequence: The Greek requirement is to be started in the fall quarter 
of the sophomore year and completed in the spring of the junior year. After 
Greek is completed the Hebrew requirement is to be taken in the senior year.
